KINGSTON – Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan has launched the county’s Green Business Champions program to support businesses that wish to decrease their greenhouse gas emissions, improve their energy efficiency, utilize renewable energy, and green their operations.

“Whether it’s building the country’s first net-zero commercial bakery, like Bread Alone, upgrading to high efficiency LED lighting, like Moonfarmer, or installing geothermal heating, like Mohonk Mountain House, there are many options available to save money, improve your operations, and demonstrate your commitment to greening our community,” said Ryan.

“By reimaging Ulster County’s financial future, we are laying the foundation for significant improvement of the Ulster County green economy,” said Tim Weidemann, the county’s economic development director. “The Green Business Challenge will bring together local organizations, financial backers, Ulster County residents and our Office for Economic Development to assemble the framework needed to support the expansion of sustainability initiatives that affect all sectors.”
